Windows 7: File sharing causes network adapter to stop responding

File sharing causes network adapter to stop responding

Whenever I connect to or from my laptop from my desktop pc, after around a minute, my laptop's ethernet stops working.

Its like the network adapter has been disabled, only its still showing up in the taskbar, and the network and sharing centre says everything is fine, but the internet stops working, and any filesharing stops.

It happens if I'm connecting to or from the laptop.

Laptop is running the beta (build 7000)

This happens to me too. I'm thinking it has to do with the IP tracking pool. I believe this started occuring when I installed new Nvidia drivers for my ethernet card.

FWIW... I've been having problems with NVIDIA drivers of late... I just had to revert back to an older version video driver to solve a problem with things locking up and I'm starting to wonder about their chipset driver as well since my network has begun acting a little strangely... Click on a local (but shared) folder and every computer on the LAN spins up...

Weird stuff...
